(Gatineau, Canada) • Authentic Italian food at one of the best restaurants in Gatineau. This gem is worth a visit whenever you are in the area or crossing the bridge from Ottawa.
Ambiance: ♡♡♡ – The restaurant is big, with a nice patio, several tables and booths, elegant décor and a bright, very comfortable atmosphere.
Service: ♡♡♡ – Exceptional. Warm, friendly, bilingual and prompt. A very charismatic hostess greeted us and brought us to a table right away. Our waitress was fast coming to get our orders, clear the dishes when we were done and the bill after. She also checked in on us and refilled our glasses without us asking.
Food wait time: ♡♡♡
Food presentation: ♡♡♡
Portion: ♡♡♡ – Even though my order was an appetizer, it came with the right amount of gnocchi and loads of sauce. You can get bread from the buffet and scoop it up.
Taste: ♡♡♡ – Simply amazing! We had Small Kale Salad al limone, gnocchi and dessert. I love the bread station where you can toast your bread on grill and put different spreads on it. The soup of the day was very good and the salad so fresh and tasty. The gnocchi was a hit and I will definitely order it again. For dessert we got the dolci Strawberry shortcake and Napolitani. Be aware though that they are very small.
Price: $$$. Worth it for the quality of food and the excellent service!
